  1. Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling, salted water, following packet instructions.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, bring wine to the boil. Reduce heat, simmer until reduced by half. Stir in cream. Simmer 2-3 minutes to thicken slightly.

  4. Add drained pasta to sauce and toss well. Season to taste. Serve topped with mint and parmesan. Accompany with crusty bread if liked.
